Thank you for fixing it. I am reading it now, but this kind of stuck out:
You are going to be releasing eight music videos in eight days for this album. Why did you decide to do it this way?
I wanted to really do what is ostensibly my last album with a big splash. I wanted the first week to be big; I wanted every single day of release
week to be an event. I wanted a video to go viral for an entire day and have people talking about that video, and then the next day they're talking
about a new video. I just thought that would be a really fun way to do it, to make a big deal out of release week.
A few things here, LAST album
He wanted them to go viral, I think he has succeeded!
I've seen two of the three that are out now (I think this is the 3rd day)
and the two I have seen were brilliant, catchy, and some of his best work IMO.
(wondering what the 1st one was I missed)
This may very well be his best selling and biggest album!
And his last....
and that makes me very sad.
But then I read this:
Wow, so this is the last "Weird Al" album?
Well, I have to be careful about that, because a lot of people listen to that and say "Oh, Al's retiring!" I am not retiring, I intend to keep making
music like I have in the past. All I'm saying is, there's a pretty good chance this is the last conventional album.
I'm ok with that! As long as he keeps on making his stuff, I will be happy.
